Sonic Rivals Dumbledore Over Weekdays, Sonic 2 Projected to Retake Top Spot in US Box Office

A few weeks ago I said Sonic 2’s long term success would hinge on whether or not it has legs. Well, it looks like it has legs…at least in the US, where the box office weekday dailies for Monday through Wednesday show Sonic 2 either beating or rivaling WB’s Fantastic Beasts 3. As we reported a few days ago, Sonic 2 beat FB3 on Easter Monday. It has since gone on to barely lose on Tuesday, making $3 million to FB3’s $3.2 million. Yesterday, it squeaked by FB3, making $2.2 million to FB3’s $2.1 million.

Box Office Pro is projecting that Sonic 2’s wins over FB3 are likely to continue, as they see it taking the top spot next weekend, not only beating FB3 but also Dreamworks’ The Bad Guys, which opens this weekend:

Of course, while BOP’s projections have been relatively accurate, they are usually off a bit in one direction or another, so Sonic 2’s return to the top spot isn’t guaranteed. Sonic 2’s overall success will also depend on its international performance, which currently sits at $112 million.
